Marcella: I want to take the opportunity to say thank you for the effort that you put into the inventory and posting the Old Moriah Cemetery. Too often I do not stop and thank people that put so much effort into this type of work. But let me say again THANK YOU!

I am doing a descendants tree for Jennings Nix B 1803, d 1885 and buried in the Ellison cemetery outside of Altoona. I have been able to identify seven of the individuals that you list in the Old Moriah Cemetery. Five of then are the family of a daughter of my G(2)Grandfather Daniel NIX of Altoona, b 1827, d 1912.

Julia A. NIX: Born: 22 AUG 1862, Blount County, Alabama. Died: ABT 1936, Benton County, (now ?) Alabama. s. Jesse Levi MURPHREE: Born: 26 MAY 1857. Died: 17 APR 1936, Alabama (78y, 10m, 23d). 1. Elise MURPHREE: Born: 20 DEC 1886, Blount County, Alabama. Died: 25 JAN 1887, Blount County, Alabama. 2. Luther MURPHREE: Born: 1 AUG 1888, Blount County, Alabama. Died: 24 AUG 1888, Blount County, Alabama. 3. Flossie MURPHREE: Born: 18 JUL 1894, Blount County, Alabama. Died: 5 AUG 1894, Blount County, Alabama. 4. Ester MURPHREE: Born: 8 JUL 1895, Blount County,. Died: 13 SEP 1895, Blount County, Alabama.

Note that I have been using A. as Julia's Middle Initial. That was the first of four MI's that I found for her, so I have continued to use until I could find better information. Her Marriage Record also uses E. so I think that thanks to you I have found better information. When I first started looking I had information from several sources stating that there were no children of this marriage according to the BYNUM BOOK. Indeed all of their children died in the first few months of life.�

I have also identified Nancy A. Allgood as the daughter of Bannister Allgood and Omacuzza Roach. I think they were on my Mothers side of the family tree, but I must trace them .

OLD MOUNT MORIAH CEMETERY, BLOUNT COUNTY, ALABAMA This was done 1985. Located north of Oneonta, nearly four miles on County Highway 39 in Murphree Valley, off Highway 75. On private property. The Old Mouriah Church was moved to Fridays Crossing in Blount County, Alabama. There were two separate sites. One just has a mound of rocks, the other I found had at least twenty graves that I was able to get information from. These are not in any set order.

Old Mt. Moriah Cemetery

Township 12 South, Range 2 East, Section 11

Location: Off County Road 39 on private property about four miles Northwest of Oneonta in Murphree's Valley. The cemetery is in two separate parts; a smaller set of graves is located several yards to the Northeast from the main cemetery. Only a few readable stones are located in the smaller set, these are in purple.

Reported by Elbert Johnson (page 206); surveyed by Melvin Jones in the 1970s; completely resurveyed by Robin Sterling 14 Oct 2002.

This cemetery was also reported in Northeast Alabama Settlers Journal, Volume XVIII, Number 4, Apr 1980, page 96; research performed by Carroll Y. Linder, Cherry Hill Farm, Route 4, Box 156, Oneonta, Alabama 35121

Old Mount Moriah Cemetery (Hardshell Cemetery) Oneonta, Blount County, Alabama

Lat: 34�00'23"N, Lon: 86�24'12"W T12 R2E Sec 11

Contributed by Bruce Jordan, Mar 30, 2002 [ ]. Total records = 43.

From Oneonta, take Hwy 75 N turning right on County Road 39. Go past Hood's Crossing. The cemetery is located approximately .5 miles past the Union Hill Church on the left. Cemetery is not visible from the road and is located on private property.

This cemetery has two distinct parts. The first or lower part of the cemetery has the most readable gravestones. The second part is up a slight incline to the right about 700 feet. The owner of the property where the cemetery is located has mowed a trail to make walking from one area to another easier.

The second or upper part has about forty graves scattered over an acre or more of land, with just five markers having readable names. One of these markers (Harvey L. Hays) seems to have been placed in the cemetery about twenty or more years ago. All the rest have limestone rocks, slabs, or concrete as markers. The information came from the actual tombstones when I walked and read the cemetery in October 2000. They are not accepting new burials. Markers could not be found for those individuals which have an asterisk * after their entry. - Bruce Jordan
